Code Monkey

OK this post has nothing to do with parenting or kids or anything of that sort.

It’s just that I found this song so charming I wanted to share it with everyone. Jonathan Coulton is a software  programmer turned singer-songwriter. He composes music that is mostly under Creative Commons license, and one of his songs – Code Monkey, linked below – became a cult hit.

Listen and I think you might see why.

PS: YouTube has many versions of Jonathan Coulton performing the song, but I think this one is the best because of its sound quality and unplugged rawness.
